Here are our recommendations for learning to play the guitar.
1. ‘Jean Welles Worship Guitar Class™’
This course is perfect for the new guitarist and the self-taught guitar player who want to learn worship songs. There are currently 4 volumes. The course assumes you know nothing about music or playing a guitar.
It’s perfect for the beginner, but we’ve also been told it’s extremely helpful for people who have not had a lot of technical background with guitar lessons. It’s available from the website as well as stores. You can see the ‘Find A Store’ menu above to see if it’s in your area. For more information about the course visit – Christian Guitar Lessons.
2. ‘Jean Welles Worship Guitar Class™ for Kids’
This course is geared for little kids from ages 5 – 9. There are two kid’s courses. We recommend starting with the ‘JW Worship Guitar Class for Kids.’ It moves a bit slower and has all worship songs. It also opens and closes with puppet skits.
The original course, Kids Guitar Lessons, is still available and makes a nice supplement to the new program. The only song in common is ‘This Little Light Of Mine.’ We were going pull it off the website, but several families told us their kids enjoyed the songs.

3. Be Thou My Vision
This is available as a streaming video lesson or in DVD format. It has 4 arrangements of this famous hymn from very easy to more advanced. This is for all levels of players – Be Thou My Vision.
4. ‘Jean Welles Worship Guitar Class™ – Mastering Finger Picking’
This course is for those who want extra help with finger picking. I recommend finishing DVD volume one from our main course. It is better to know a little bit about playing the guitar before starting this course. This is available at the website as DVD, as streaming videos, and the book and DVD is available at retail stores. For more details visit – Mastering Finger Picking
5. ‘Jean Welles Worship Guitar Class™ – Christmas Songs and Solos’
This is not a beginner course. You should have at least DVD volume one from our main course. There are easier songs, but also more advanced songs that are great for someone who wants more from their playing. Like the course above, this is available in DVD format, as streaming videos and the book with DVD is available at retails stores. For the details visit – Christmas Songs on the Guitar
6. ‘Jean Welles Worship Guitar Class™ – Reading Music and Music Theory’
Although the course starts out extremely slow, knowing the first two volumes in our main course with be very helpful. It’s not a geared towards complete beginners. This course is currently only available as streaming videos. The book and DVD’s should be available soon. To learn more visit – Reading Music and Guitar Music Theory.
